As a Father's Day gift, children wrote a special secret love message to their Dad. (I knew there is a purpose for a white crayon in our oil pastel crayon set!)
What you need:
- a white crayon (we are using one from a Giotto Oil Pastels set – buy here);
- watercolor paint (we are using Art Supply 36 Color Watercolor Artist Paint Set – buy here);
- a paintbrush (we are using Artify 38 piece Paint Brushes Art Set – buy here);
- a secret message to write.
A secret invisible message written with the white crayon will magically appear with the application of 🎨 watercolors.
Adrian's secret message: "Love you Dad."
Julia's secret message: "Love you Dad."
This craft activity is also a great writing exercise where a child learns proper tracing directions while writing a secret message. Writing lowercase "a" took a lot of practice, but eventually, Adrian was able to trace it! See here a post "Refining Straight Lines in 🔠 Uppercase Letter-Writing" where Adrian is practicing writing in his KUMON workbook (buy here).
